Here is another update on my film project, which is running all year and documenting my 30th year here on this little blue planet. I shot most of these this past weekend and had them processed while I was in the Twin Cities for the long holiday weekend. I have been enjoying the M6TTL 0.85 so much that I am thinking of selling the ol’ M3 DS to a new owner who will treat her well! I hate to have her sitting around and not getting much use, but we will see over the coming weeks which one I find myself reaching for most often.
I had gotten away from film a bit over the previous year-and-a-half and I am really enjoying it again; it’s like I’ve discovered a long-lost friend once again. I love the look, and the tactile nature, of film–I love that I have actually created something, rather than aimed a sensor at something and created a digital array of 1’s and 0’s inside of a computer. I also love old cameras, which are far more enjoyable (to me) to hold and work with. Additionally, as I mentioned earlier this week, I really like the fact that I can’t look at my images right away; I have started doing the same with my digital files, too. I now find myself leaving them on the memory card altogether, or importing them to Aperture and leaving them there for a while. It makes coming back to them much more satisfying.
